Day 10: Cinn-O-Bun Rumchata Latte​

No matter what age you are, you just can't beat a warm, fresh cinnamon bun on Christmas morning. Our Cinn-O-Bun Rumchata Latte is creamy and sweet with a kick of cinnamon spice! It's a delicious drink perfect for your holiday parties, and tastes just as great even when you omit the alcohol. 

The classic taste of cinnamon with bits of icing makes our Cinn-O-Bunn tea taste just like the real thing. This comforting hot beverage can be enjoyed any time of the day - though in our opinion it's best in the morning.

Notes

For the best balance of flavors, be careful not to over steep this tea, or it will have a very strong cinnamon taste. 


If you're adding rumchata, we recommend keeping it room temperature as to not bring down the temperature of the latte.

You can use any milk (dairy or dairy-free) for this drink. Keep in mind that some dairy alternatives such as almond milk foam better than others such as oat milk.


If you don't have a frother, heat the milk in the microwave or a pan and pulse a few times in a blender. You can also shake it in a mason jar - just be careful not to make the milk too hot. If you have whipped cream, you can skip the frothing step and just top your latte with whipped cream for extra indulging.
